Free Download of TaxCut Basic


For the past two years, I have been using H&R’s TaxCut Online to do our taxes. I find the interface very easy to use and so far I’ve been pleased with the results. We qualify for the FreeFile program so we use the online version.

If you are interested in trying out TaxCut, you can get a free download of their 2007 basic program from download.com.

On a related note, I see that my state refund deposit is pending in my checking account. Yay! One down…one to go.

Yay! Our Taxes are Completed


One of my goals this past weekend was to double-check our tax returns and then submit them. We were due to get about $500 back. Boy, I’m glad I double-checked things. I put a wrong number in under our income. With that correction, it will bring our federal and state refunds to around $650.

I’ve heard reports of people getting their e-filed direct deposit refunds within a week. If all goes well, we will be able to reduce our debt below $13K by the end of the month. For giggles, I took our current debt and subtracted our tax refund and the economic stimulus check that should be arriving in May (for us, it will be $1,500). That will put our debt at $11,249. Wow. With our contributions, by the end of May we could be under the $10,000 mark.

Then we will really be in the “home stretch” once our debt is in the four figure range!
